The Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog has a DT call at the moment and as my DH always says, nothing ventured, nothing gained, this is my application for the DT.
I have only been making cards since this past January and the best bit of advice I read in a paper craft magazine was that good cards are made up of three things – composition, embellishments and colour work/stamping so I have tried to pick three projects to illustrate all three.
If you would like to apply too, click on this link for more details.
This is the first of my 3 projects for the call. All of my projects have been made in the last couple of weeks or so.
This is one of my favourite Sugar Nellie stamps and I have made a lot of cards using it. It was brought out last Christmas but as I wasn’t making cards last Christmas, I knew nothing about it – or Sugar Nellie in general! Needless to say, I’ve caught up now
This is the second project – Embellishments
I have just recently learned how to make my own paper flowers and this card features all of my own embellishments.
This is my third project – Colourwork
So that’s it! I hope it wasn’t too much of a chore to read through and if you’ve stumbled across this post and are applying to, good luck!
